simple answer

dont. or do it badly. those are the only options if you wear glasses n try to header.

when you are about to head the ball, remove your glasses. once you headed the ball, put them back on. :)

head with the back of ur head! That really worked for me! ;D No, seriously, put them away until the game/practise is finished. Or, u could get some Davids-googles:)

try using the upper part of your forehead, around the hairline. It might hurt though :?

Heres a suggestion...

Dont head the ball if it cuts you

OR...

Take of your glasses before you play.
